Las Vegas & Grand Canyon Highlights
Happy Halloween the 3rd! ;) The best time of the year is finally here! I can’t wait for all the fun activities to come.
Today I am sharing some of my favorite parts of my recent trip to Las Vegas. I went with my parents, for a week, and we had a lot of fun! The one hiccup was that when we got to LAS, we realized my suitcase wasn’t there. After some investigation, the airline told us that it had been stolen. At first, I was very bummed, but in the end I decided I wouldn’t let it ruin my vacation, and thank God the airline is taking responsibility so I am getting my money back for everything that was in the suitcase, but I have to wait a few weeks before they approve my claim.
Apart from that, we had an awesome time! I was able to do A LOT of shopping since I had to replace all the items in my suitcase, so that was cool, even if I was sad at losing all those things.
I’m definitely not a gambler, as I’m terrified I’ll lose all my money, but you definitely need to at least go visit the Casinos, have a drink and enjoy the environment, it’s really fun!
Fremont Street! This is basically the downtown of Las Vegas, and it’s so alive and full of music, colors and happy (also drunk) people! We had a blast the night we went, there was live music going on and we walked for a while while sipping on frozen margaritas. Also, you need to walk along the full strip at least once.
Red Rock Canyon, this is like 20 minutes from the strip, and it’s gorgeous! You can’t miss it, especially during golden hour, take some food and admire the view.
For shopping, you can visit the Wynn designer shops, the Palazzo, the Forum shops at the Caesars Palace, the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, and for cheaper options, there’s two outlet malls very close to the strip, as well.
Watch a show! You can’t visit Las Vegas and not watch a show. We went to see Luis Miguel at the Caesars Palace, because my mom is obsessed with him, and I enjoy his songs as well. But some other great ones are The Beatles Love by Cirque du Soleil, Paranormal - The Mindreading Magic Show, and ALL SHOOK UP - Tribute to the King.
Take a road tirp to the Grand Canyon National Park, if you haven’t been. The view is spectacular! I had been there once when I was 12 years old, but it was just as impressive the second time around. It’s a pretty long drive, so make sure you leave really early in the morning.
Cafe Lola, this is the cutest cafe ever! It’s full of flowers, which I love, and their drinks and food are adorable as well! I recommend going for breakfast or just for coffee/dessert, not for lunch because they don’t really have actual entrees, just snacks, toast and desserts, but they do have a great variety of yummy drinks!
Neon Museum, they have all these old, vintage Las Vegas signs, it’s really really cool!
Mob Museum, you get to hear about the crime and dark side of Las Vegas, it’s very interesting and a super unique experience.
While walking on the strip at night, please don’t miss the Bellagio Fountains show! It’s beautiful, and it’s free!
-The Eiffel Tower Restaurant: this was amazing! The view you get is beautiful, the place is lovely, and the food was really, really good. I had the chicken, with some white wine.
-Brio Tuscan Grille: OMG this was my favorite. It’s so delicous! I had the ravioli, and I’m still dreaming about it. Everything I tried was great and super filling, I actually recommend sharing if possible! Also, the place is really nice.
-Cabo Wabo: the main thing I liked about this one is it’s location! It’s right on the strip, and you can sit outside and people watch while eating some delicious nachos with a michelada!
-Sushi Roku: if you like sushi, you will fall in love here! The staff is so nice, and the crab rice was delicious!
-Blue Ribbon Brasserie: This is in the Cosmopolitan, really great ambiance and very friendly service! Also, try the desserts, they are delicious.
